My Call Story (Or The Post I Thought I’d Published)

I’ve wrote this post in May and sat on it for a few days while I signed contracts, calmed down etc.

And then forgot to publish it!

I have signed with Limitless Publishing for the Soul Ties series, the first book is scheduled for release in August this year.

So how did this happen? Soul Ties is the second manuscript I’ve queried this year. Following a few rejections, I decided to shelve my other paranormal romance for revision and focus on Soul Ties. The response I got to the characters and story early on, from my writing group and CP, confirmed this was the way to go. And I loved what I’d created (especially Ava and Keir).

Once I decided to try and get Soul Ties a publisher, I entered a few pitching competitions (because you know I love those). I also sent to a couple of publishers who I thought my work suited, including Limitless Publishing. A few requested full manuscripts and I sent, sat back and waited for the rejections to roll in again.

I had my fingers crossed for Limitless Publishing because as soon as I saw their website, it was evident how much support they were giving their authors. The book covers and marketing jumped out at me and I hoped I’d be a fit for them. So I read through some of their authors’ books and waited hopefully…

Once they requested my full, the offer for the series followed quickly. What a start to my weekend!

This was a few weeks ago now but the excitement hasn’t worn off. I’m now working with my editor on polishing the manuscript and enjoying connecting with the Limitless team. I feel lucky to have the chance to share Soul Ties with you all and thank Limitless Publishing for the opportunity to join their group of talented authors.

I will keep you all updated every step of the way. And I’m writing the sequel right now :)

Publishers and Bush Fires


Crazy, crazy week.

And it’s been so long since I blogged!

My new project took over and I am now 30k words into my first draft of a new WIP. Originally it had the working title “Soul Tied”. A member of my writers group critiqued a chapter with some interesting comments and the working title is now “Nephiliman and Mouse Girl”. So far the feedback has been positive!

I had a full manuscript requested by a publisher on Sunday! Such a high for a couple of days…and a couple of days of two very good friends looking over for final edits before I was brave enough to send it. And they enjoyed it. A very validating week – I CAN write.

Looking forward to a peaceful day after that excitement, things didn’t work out. We were evacuated due to a bush fire and I spent an afternoon at a good friends house waiting to find out of my house was burning down.

Yes. Weird week. Everything crossed that I hear back from the publisher soon!


Welcome to my new blog


As if I don’t have enough to do, I have decided to start blogging too!

In between running a home-based business and looking after three children I somehow find time to write.

I took the plunge this year and completed NaNoWriMo (for the uninitiated that is writing a 50,ooo+ word novel in one month). It was the kickstart I needed and I am now editing my novel, determined to finish what I started.

So Eternal Vigilance, a YA paranormal romance is looking for a home. More on that to follow…

I’ve been spending a lot of time hopping around blogs and have found some fantastic resources, some of which I will share on here once I work out how.

Meanwhile, back to editing editing editing. When I have time.
